Fellipe Andrew passes Buchecha to take top spot in IBJJF rankings

After shining with absolute gold at the 2020 European Championship, Fellipe Andrew became the No. 1 male BJJ fighter in the world. Following the event but before the rankings update, Fellipe was already confident he was going to pass Marcus Buchecha.

Only 30 points separated Fellipe from the top. Now he has jumped to 985.5 points, followed by Buchecha, at 819, and Lucas Hulk, who has 780.5.

“After getting a medal in the absolute at the 2019 Worlds, I placed myself in a good position on the list,” said Fellipe in a recent talk with Graciemag. “I put the rankings as one of the foci for 2020.”

He added: “Passing Buchecha in the rankings is… different. Hulk is also glued to us on points, so I’m going to fight with all I can.”
